Local Illustarator Nora Thompson

We're so proud of our local authors and illustrators!

Pittsburgh illustrator Nora Thompson has a new book out.

Yikes! Wow! Yuck! offers dozens of science fair ideas, accompanied by detailed, energetic, and engaging iluustratons.

Sodapop explodes from a two-liter bottle. Pieces of fruit hang mysteriously suspended in green Jello. Multi-colored candy spills temptingly from a bag. These pictures do more than show us what the science experiments are about. They depict the action and excitement of scientific discovery.

Some of the illustratios reflect the title. Check out the rotting jack-o-lantern on the back cover. Yiles!
